In 2016 we developed our school values statement in response to a wide ranging consultation that included children, families and staff. The following year we took the three values – honesty, kindness and respect – and used them as the basis for creating our school vision. This was developed with staff as we wrestled with the words and the wording in an effort to come up with a statement that we felt captured everything we stood for and aspired to in our school. It was important that the final statement represented our vision for everyone in the school community; adult and children alike; was positive, outward looking and ambitious. It came at a significant time in the development of our school and since that moment it started to appear in corridors, classrooms and offices around the school it has been our go-to road map for decision making as we take our school forward.
